Understanding the Aussie Dude & The Aussie Dudette
When you meet an Aussie’s they have a slant of English foreign to even English speaking folk.
We’ve deciphered the Aussie lingo to help you babble through the slang!
When a dude says:
- G’day mate – Pleased to make your acquaintance.
- Man, he’s blotto – Inebriated beyond capacity to stand up
- You little ripper – Words of praise fail me.
- Rack off mate – Your presence is no longer required
- Fair dinkum – Of course I’m telling the truth
- Pull ya head in – You may be correct in your assertion but shut up
- Wanna rage? – Would you like to drink vast amounts of alcohol with me until we drop?
- You drongo – A rather dimwitted person.
- Your shout – If you value you well being you should buy the next drink!
- Go on – I’m not entirely convinced you know what you’re talking about
- Whadaywant?- May I ask what you want?
